Huge weapons cache caught at the border

Ok this is what George Bush has created by tying the hands of our National Guard and our Border Agents - a growing TERRORIST threat at our southern border and not necessarily by Islamic jihadists but by Mexican Zeta thugs. WHEN is our government going to get it that we need our military HERE at our OWN BORDERS - like NOW! Stop screwing around trying to save other countries - we need to SAVE OUR OWN!

So.. have we seen any of this covered on CNN? MSNBC? ABC? NBC? If this truck had been stopped in Iraq do you think there would have been more news coverage? Perhaps the main stream media is too busy following the Ann Nicole Smith drama to bother with .. oh.. national SECURITY.

More on arms seized at U.S. - Mexican border town

Submitted by admin on Fri, 2007-02-23 13:38.

23 February 2007: On February 11, 2007, a tractor-trailer registered in Texas and containing a large shipment of weapons, ammunition and a Nissan pickup truck fitted with armor and bullet-proof glass was stopped by the Mexican army in Matamoros, just south of the U.S. border at Brownsville, Texas.

The weapons seized included 18 M-16 assault rifles, including at least one equipped with an M-203 40mm grenade launcher, several M-4 carbines, 17 handguns of various calibers, over 200 magazines for different weapons, and more than 8,000 rounds of ammunition, assault vests and other military accessories.

Although the origin of the shipment is unclear, it is vividly obvious that areas along the U.S.-Mexican border are as much war zones as transshipment points. Matamoros has long been recognized as a vital choke point for the shipment of drugs, weapons and illegal aliens, including Islamic terrorists, into the United States from Mexico. Based on the sophistication of the weapons seized earlier this month, it is apparent that a battle is shaping up just across the border from Brownsville – one that will undoubtedly have ominous implications for those protecting our southern border.
